Apr 15, 2022 | News

STARKVILLE — Students at Millsaps Career Technology Center gathered in room 12 as red flashing lights lit the classroom and hallway outside. A new $30,000 ambulance simulator was all the rage of the day for students inside Millsaps.

Three career technology education programs will benefit directly from the ambulance simulator: health science core, law and public safety and sports medicine. It will begin to be a full-on teaching tool next semester, according to health science technology teacher Jemeica Arnold.

Funds for the ambulance simulator came from Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006. The act focuses on providing materials for career and technical education programs for secondary and postsecondary school.
